What motivates some of the region’s leading social entrepreneurs? How do they lead their industry? And how do they hope to make an even greater impact? 

We had so many burning questions for the winners of this year’s Gen.T x Credit Suisse Social Impact Awards that we couldn’t choose between them. So we decided to ask them all—really, really fast. 

Produced in partnership with Credit Suisse, the Social Impact Awards recognise Gen.T honourees who are using technology to create social impact at scale. 

For the Social Impact Quickfire, we partnered two awardees in the same industry, shooting off dozens of rapid-fire questions about their company, their why and the impact they make.

We paired Liu Shuman with Yang Kaikai, CEO of Dipole Tech, which uses use blockchain and the internet of things to allow customers to construct and manage their own energy networks.

Watch the video to see how Liu Shuman and Yang Kaikai are utilising cutting-edge technology to cut carbon emissions.
